Light for Ukraine

Europe/Warsaw
Description

Light for Ukraine – synchrotron workshop at SOLARIS towards Nano and micro X-ray spectroscopy applications.

Since February 2022, with the invasion of Russia in Ukraine, the activity of the scientific society in Ukraine has been heavily impacted, limiting the realization of research projects on both national and international levels. The European and Intercontinental scientific community is making numerous efforts to support Ukrainian researchers’ projects at home and in exile. 

In light of the current situation, the League of European Accelerator Based-Photon Sources – LEAPS, designated SOLARIS National Synchrotron Radiation Centre as a coordinating facility to implement and supervise the activities aiming at consolidation and strengthening the Ukrainian users’ community. Within the “Light for Ukraine” project the Polish and Ukrainian synchrotron radiation user communities, acting together, are making efforts to build a joint research infrastructure that will further strengthen cross-border cooperation.

The first edition of the online meeting “Light for Ukraine – synchrotron workshop at SOLARIS” was a great success (with more than 250 participants) and greatly strengthened the scientific collaboration within LEAPS-Ukraine cooperation. In this context, SOLARIS National Synchrotron Radiation Centre in Krakow (Poland), together with the National Academy of Sciences of Ukraine, is delighted to announce the 2nd edition of the workshop, which will be held on 23rd January 2024 as an online event. This workshop will focus on the concept of the planned Ukrainian synchrotron beamline: “Nano and micro X-ray spectroscopy beamline”. This workshop will gather input from beamline scientists from other synchrotron facilities on research opportunities and scientific goals of “Nano and micro X-ray spectroscopy beamline”. In addition, the agenda of the meeting will cover presentations of Ukrainian researchers on scientific areas of interest. We intend to outline necessary activities within the meeting and discuss possible pathways to develop the Ukrainian beamline at the SOLARIS facility.
We cordially invite you to join the meeting,

With our kind regards,

Chairs of the workshop,

Alexander Kordyuk and Jakub Szlachetko
